In the US, the Snow Leopard upgrade is $29 (from Leopard). If you're upgrading from Tiger, Apple recommends The Mac Box Set, which runs about $120 from Amazon. The Mac Box Set is a good idea for Tiger users because it gets your iLife Suite and iWork completely up-to-date. It's actually not a bad deal at all - and since it's officially sanctioned by Apple, it should also be supported.

You probably also want to upgrade the RAM (max it out to 2GB if you can) and do a completely clean install. When you're done, your machine will pretty much feel brand new.

The upgrade is well worth the money over Tiger, which looks pretty stripped down when I go back to it by comparison. But don't wait... 10.7 will be out soon, and chances are that it will be full price (10.6 was only $30 as it was more or less a performance enhancement over 10.5, with few new features).

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
